Chartered Land plans Dublin’s tallest tower on Parkgate Street
Reddy Architecture + Urbanism have submitted plans for a 29 storey residential tower on behalf of developer Joe O’Reilly’s Chartered Land at Parkgate Street as part of a major mixed use complex.
The 93metre building serves as a landmark tower indentifying the site which will deliver 481 apartments within four blocks ranging from 8 to 29 storeys. This will be complemented with over 4,000m² of commercial office and retail space.
This site’s location adjoining a major transport network and within reach of Dublin City Centre is ideal for a high density managed residential development. The concept for the scheme is based on delivering a high quality residential mixed-use development that responds to the existing context to create an integrated, permeable and sustainable destination on this significant city centre site.
The main tower rises to 29 storeys in total and forms a landmark architectural statement at the apex of the site.
The overall height, scale and massing is in accordance with the strategic planning objectives for this location which has been identified for higher density development and has been modulated to reflect the grain of existing street pattern and setting a height appropriate for this ‘Gateway’ Site.
The buildings form two south facing open spaces for both private amenity and public realm placemaking which connect Parkgate street directly to the river and open up views across to Heuston Station, the first of its kind in Dublin. Further outdoor terraces are provided at several roof levels facing west, east and south providing generous residential amenity space for residents to enjoy.
